Dave's Biography

BS, State University of New York at Binghamton
New York Art Students’ League
David Lee is an award winning full time artist for the last twelve years. In the last dozen years, Dave has amassed more than 30 awards – including First place awards from Bethlehem Palette Club, Parkland Art League and Lehigh Art Alliance.
David is a watercolor and oil impressionist who paints landscape and figures. His style is loose, bold and spontaneous. He believes an artist’s focus is very short, one should executes his paintings as quickly as he can, this is especially true when he paints outdoor on location.  
David’s goal is to capture a moment in time that may invoke feeling and interest from viewers. He thinks an artist should strive to show what he sees is worthwhile and important.  
For leisure, David plays racquetball and enjoys travels and reading art books on Winslow Homer, Degas and John Singer Sargent.  He finds strong inspiration and influence from contemporary artists such as Richard Schmidt, Quang Ho and Alvaro Castagnet.  
David was born in China and raised up in New York City. He spent his teen-age years studying in H.S. of Music and Art and took Saturday and summer classes in N.Y. Art Student’s league.
